Screen turns black after intro due to...

My laptop battery died so I had to purchase a new one. I ordered one online as well as a new keyboard. I installed the new keyboard and then tried the new battery. It will get through the intro but then the screen goes black? Did I install it incorrectly or is it an entirely different issue?

1. if you purchase a new battery it will have to be charge for 24 hours before you use it or it will not operate properly.
You also may want to check you adapter that charges your laptop if may have lost its ability to send a charge.

My lenova g550 hard disc indicator light won't turn opn. the screen is black


Have you made any modifications to the computer lately? (Taken it apart ect?) I had a similar issue with mine. There was a short in the keyboard. I ordered and installed a new keyboard and it has booted up fine ever since.

Try something as simple as checking the keyboard connection, this will require taking the laptop apart though.

My screen is black


A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector. Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken. If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced. Hope this helps

When i turn it on it wont show desk top it stays on a black screen


Does your laptop have its lights on the keyboard even if your screen is black? If it is , try to remove the cables and battery of the laptop. Press and hold the power button for 8 seconds. Then reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop. Turn on the laptop, and if there is no light on screen & keyboard, it means that the power supply or the motherboard has trouble. That is the time to contact Dell support for possible repair or replacement. Otherwise if the keyboard has lights but the screen is still black, that would be a video card problem since the LCD screen is not a separate entity. Just make sure if it has the power button on the screen, it is turned on. That instance would need a video card replacement...

W490 Motorola inital screen comes on, then goes black.


There is usualy no certain way to tell whats to blame on a bad phone without testing, but in your case I think that it is your phone that is malfunctioning. A low/bad battery either doesn't turn on or if it does it will at leat allow the phone to go on and then displays low battery before shutting off.
If you are out of warranty period, then you can easily flash this phone fo much cheaper than purchasing a new one. I would ecoment that you first take it o a repair place to be examined.
